Re: would a failing key fob battery cause...

it would def. affect starting IMO. I just had to replace the battery in my wifes lexus fob. It would start...but it gave a warning on the info screen thaat the battery was getting low on the fob and that it wouldnt recognioze the fob with a low battery.
Just replavce the battery and you will be good.
